Your questions answered!

Q. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN PREGNANCY COMPRESSION LENGTHS/STYLES?

Each garment has very slight variations and more than anything else, it comes down to personal preference for each customer.

- Full length leggings provide the best venous return and are a fashion staple that can be worn like any other pair of black leggings. However, pregnancy leggings may not be preferable for women who live in warmer climates and are also going to be slightly more difficult to put on than our shorter styles.
- Regular (knee-length) Shorts can be worn like bike shorts as both an undergarment and outerwear. They provide a slightly better venous return than our Mini length.
-Lots of women prefer the Pregnancy Shorts Mini because they fit perfectly under shorter dresses and are great for hotter climates. They are also the easiest to put on.

Q. OVER THE BUMP OR UNDER THE BUMP?
Over the bump products do not have any compression over the belly, however, some women prefer to be fully covered to achieve the feeling of extra support. Both styles provide the exact same level of compression and it is up to the individual on what style they would prefer. Here’s our rule of thumb:

Under the Bump:

- If you don’t want to cover your belly
- If your skin can feel sensitive and itchy
- If you feel hot or live in warmer climates
Over the Bump:

- If you want to cover the bump
- If you like the feeling of extra support without compressing the bump

Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BELLY BAND OR PREGNANCY BELT AND THE SRC PREGNANCY SHORTS OR LEGGINGS?

SRC Pregnancy compression garments were designed to treat multiple conditions during pregnancy; Low Back Pain, Pelvic Girdle Pain (SIJ & SPD), Sciatic Nerve Pain, and Vulvar Varicosities.

• Pregnancy belly bands simply do not treat all these conditions.

• SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings are more comfortable to wear than any pregnancy belly band. Because of this they are more likely to be worn for long periods which increases their effectiveness.

• Most pregnancy belly bands do not move with your body and can feel restrictive requiring constant adjustment when sitting down or getting up.

• Pregnancy belts are not always comfortable or flattering especially if you are wearing them under anything that is fitted or over your clothes.

• Many pregnancy belts have hooks, loops, or Velcro so there is a chance of snagging your clothes.

With SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings there’s no risk of deactivating your muscles.

• Pregnancy belts rely on your ‘judgement’ to get the right level of compression when tightening it. Doing it up too tight and you risk muscle deactivation.

• There’s also the risk of compromising blood circulation, negatively impacting your pelvic floor and bowel function if worn too tightly or for too long.

• Belly bands should only be worn for short periods, 2-3 hours to prevent deactivation of your muscles

In some cases, you may benefit from both the SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings and a pregnancy belt. If you have severe symptoms of Pelvic Girdle Pain you can wear the SRC Pregnancy Shorts or leggings all day and night, without causing muscle deactivation. During periods where you need to be on your feet for an extended time, you can combine both, by adding the pregnancy belly band over the top of the SRC Pregnancy compression garment for additional support.

Q. CAN I SLEEP IN THE PREGNANCY GARMENTS?

Yes! We think our Pregnancy garments are your perfect sleeping companion. You will feel supported and stable as you sleep, waking up feeling refreshed. The gentle compression does not deactivate your muscles and will assist in minimizing pelvic pain.

Q. HOW MANY HOURS A DAY CAN I WEAR MY PREGNANCY GARMENT?

You should wear your SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings for as many hours as they feel comfortable. Your shorts or leggings can be worn both day and night.

Q. DO THE SRC PREGNANCY GARMENTS HELP WITH VARICOSE VEINS?

SRC Pregnancy garments will assist with relieving symptoms of vulvar varicosities, however, for mild varicose veins and leg swelling we recommend the SRC Pregnancy Leggings rather than the Shorts Mini Length.

*Please note: SRC Pregnancy Leggings have a gentle level of graduated compression in the legs. These are suitable for women with mild varicose veins or swelling. This product will not provide enough compression for moderate or severe varicose veins of the legs.

Women often complain that wearing a grade 2 or 3 compression stocking for long periods can be difficult due to them becoming hot and tight. We hear you! That’s why the SRC Leggings were designed with a specific level of compression so that women can wear their compression stockings under the SRC Leggings for a number of hours during the day.

Once the compression stockings have been removed the SRC Leggings will continue to provide mild graduated compression so the the benefit of having worn the stockings is not lost.

Q. WHY DO MORE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS RECOMMEND SRC PREGNANCY SHORTS AND LEGGINGS?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings have been designed in consultation with a leading Melbourne obstetrician, Dr. Grant Saffer. The targeted anatomical support panels fit perfectly with your natural curves and deliver consistent gentle compression.

The garment provides superior support without any feeling of restriction.

SRC Health has the most extensive and evidence-based maternity compression range in the world that has been designed by women, for women.

We are committed to implementing findings from the latest scientific and medical research into our garments to support women in their maternity journey.
